A London Flower Girl - Sold

Samuel Baruch Halle (1824-1889) - Sold

A London Flower Girl - Sold

An extremely fine oil painting on artist's board depicting a young flower seller by important 19th century artist Samuel Baruch Halle.  The composition of the present lot is closely related to another painting by Halle sold by Christie's in 1991.  In 1991 that painting realised $6,600 USD in New York, Halle's work has performed well when offered at auction in recent years and the Christie's painting would doubtless realise rather more than it did in 1991 if offered at auction today.  It is perhaps worth emphasising that, although compositionally similar to the Christie's painting, the present lot is unquestionably an original autograph work by Halle and is fully warranted as such.  Another similar painting is in the British National Art Collection and can be seen in The Atkinson Art Gallery, Southport.  The painting is signed and dated lower right.
